Description christian.kehrmann 2010-05-11 11:22:37 UTC
Description of problem:
We use chvt during the %pre-section of anaconda to switch to a different console to get input from the user.
That worked in RHEL5, but in RHEL6 Beta the command chvt is missing.

Also we use eject to eject the CD we boot from.  This command is also missing in RHEL6.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from RHEL6 Beta DVD
2. as soon as the graphical installer is started, switch to VT2 with
Ctrl-Alt-F2
3. on this shell the commands chvt and eject are not available
  
Actual results:
sh: chvt: command not found
sh: eject: command not found

Expected results:
For command 'chvt':
Switch to a different console with e.g. 'chvt 1' to the first console.

For command 'eject <device_of_cd-drive>':
The tray of the specified CD drive should open.

Additional info:
I filed a similar bug for the missing command nslookup, Bugzilla ID is 591064.
